Triple sec, or Cointreau, is an alcoholic citrus cocktail that will be a real life saver in hot summer weather if served on the rocks. And it is made on the basis of citrus peels, not the juice itself.

The idea for the Triple Sec or Cointreau citrus cocktail was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Natalia Tsukatnata. It is very important to strain the infusion well so that there are no extra grains of peel.
